Skip the Line: Lunch atop the Berlin TV Tower

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The view from the tower was amazing. This was something different to do, and well worth it. Our window side table had us looking out on the city throughout our lunch. The food was excellent. This "Skip the Line" was worth it. While waiting for our VIP entry, we heard over the loud speaker that people purchasing tickets could expect an entry time 4 hours later. And this was a Sunday in the middle of March.

Potsdam Half-Day Trip from Berlin

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Too bad that it rained. However, this trip to Potsdam was excellent. The bus gives you 2-1/2 hours to either wonder SanSoucci Park or the city itself on your own. We chose the Park and visited the Palace. It was amazing. This trip was a great way to be introduced to Potsdam. We both decided that on our next visit to Berlin, we will be going back to Potsdam and spending the whole day there between the Park and the city.

Berlin's Infamous Third Reich Sites Half-Day Walking Tour

Berlin, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our tour guide was very knowledgable. I learned many new things about this era. He had a book of photos to which he kept referring to give you an idea as to how areas looked prior to the start of the war and to the almost complete destruction after the war. The little facts he had made this tour exciting.

Siena and San Gimignano Day Trip from Florence

Florence, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Two magnificent medieval cities were a great day trip from Florence. The tour guide in Siena was full of facts and information about the history of Siena. The Campo really is amazing to see. It was especially interesting, as Siena had just run the Palio the week prior and the tour guide gave us a great history of the Palio. San Gimignano is a great city to wonder. The historic walled city is a must see.

Rome Super Saver: Colosseum and Ancient Rome with Best of Rome Afternoon Walking Tour

Rome, Italy

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

It was great booking these two tours as a single entity. Each tour guide was knowledgeable and intriguing. I learned so much about ancient Rome in the morning tour. The afternoon walking tour takes you to so many "must see" sights.

The tour guide was very knowledgable, providing much insight into the entire visit. I discovered how much I really did not know about Dachau and the entire Concentration Camp system.

The weather was perfect, the visit spectacular. I was disappointed that I was unable to take pictures in either castle. But this tour is a must for any visitor to the Munich area.

Hydra, Poros and Egina Day Cruise from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The island of Hydra was amazing. I could have spent my entire day visiting that one island. It was extremely welcoming, although the time we had was limited. We had little time in Poros. Unfortunately it rained while we were on Aegina. Unless you take the "optional tour" on Aegina, there is not really much to see on your own. The food provided on the cruise was the worst meal I had on my entire visit to Greece.

Delphi Day Trip from Athens

Athens, Greece

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

A long drive, but well worth it. Delphi is not to be missed. This was the "center" of the world according to Greek mythology and it is steeped in history. The tour guide was full of amazing facts and information. Her knowledge certainly added to this tour. Plenty of time was given to explore on your own, in addition to the guided tour of Delphi. Don't miss the Delphi museum. The artifacts there are well worth seeing. On a side note, do not expect typical Greek food when purchasing the lunch option. The food was edible, and certainly nothing of any note.
